An Islington man was found with a gunshot wound to his back on Monday after he accidentally shot himself. According to multiple reports, he was on the way to perform a robbery in north London.

Police suspect that while the man was riding his moped, the gun in his backpack was triggered and he was shot in the back. A man on another scooter is believed to have picked up the gun and driven away.

Naeem immediately called for help. A few minutes into the conversation, the man took the phone from her and pleaded for an ambulance to be sent quickly.

The incident occurred just days after an 18-year-old man lost his hand in an axe attack just two streets over. While some have suggested that the events are connected, police have denied the accusations.

“Islington is a safe borough,” Islington Council Cabinet member Paul Convery said, “and we’re determined to keep it that way.”
